    THANK YOU BILL COSBY!!

    'They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. áI can't even talk the way these people talk:
    Why you ain't,
    Where you is,
    What he drive,
    Where he stay,
    Where he work,
    Who you be...
    á
    And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
    And then I heard the father talk.
    Everybody knows it's important to speak English
    except these knuckleheads.á You can't be a doctor
    with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
    á
    In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.á People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.á
    The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
    These people are not parenting.á They are buying things for kids.á
    $500 sneakers for what ? ?
    And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

    I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
    Where were you when he was á2 ? ?
    Where were you when he was 12 ? ?
    Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol ? ?
    And where is the father ? ?á Or who is his father ?
    People putting their clothes on backward:
    Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?
    People with their hats on backward.... pants down around the crack.á Isn't that a sign of something ?
    Or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up ?
    Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up.... and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

    What part of Africa did this come from??
    We are not Africans.á Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .

    With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap, and all of them are in jail.

    Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.

    We have got to take the neighborhood back.á
    People used to be ashamed.á Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.

    We have millionaire football players who cannot read.ááá
    We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs.á We, as black folks, have to do a better job.á Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
    We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.
    á
    We cannot blame the white people any longer.'á
    áá
    ááááááááááááááááááá - Dr. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed.D.á

    What on earth is this tangent contributing to the discussion? Besides acting as a distraction from the real issue.

    I know this is anecdotal but I remember reading a study. This study said that you can gauge the "Health" of a society (regardless of color/nationality) �by how effective that society is in raising it's little boys up to truly desire to be wonderful fathers. When this desire is no longer instilled (by mom and dad) then the society will inevitably�decline.�

    So Bill Cosby, who never acknowleged his out-of-wedlock daughter, is still admonishing Black fathers for failure to raise their kids? Methinks Mr. Cosby doth protest too much.
    Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, foodstamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
    Most welfare recipients, section 8 tenants, student loan recipients, and Pell Grant recipients are White. Is this another case of "If I don't get it, it's a handout"? Why aren't the Child Tax Credit and Mortgage Interest Deduction called "handouts?" Are homeowners somehow superior to renters?

    There is a difference in giving people money (welfare, foodstamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing) and letting them keep money they have earned (Child Tax Credit and Mortgage Interest Deduction)
